Hide tickets; Secrets dealing with money?.. Nope!. You go down that road, next thing you know you accused of having an affair.Just Don't Do it!

"What's going on? Um, what do you mean hun?  You know? You know everything? But.. But.. You noticed I was hiding stuff, shredding papers and being secretive and all.  But it's not like you think.  I was doing it for us, to better our lives.  What do you mean how can an affair better our lives?  Affair?  What affair, I mean, yeah, that's it, an affair.  That is what I have been hiding from you.  I am so sorry.  Let's work this out... but first I've gotta run to the store, it's almost ten."

  I'm feeling a jackpot win coming my way!

    Good One JimSmile..( Depending on where you live/ related to the following)

    My first response came off a commercial for State Farm * l think.

    This guy is in his pyjamas on the phone  at 2.00am, the wife is at the top of the stairs looking down on him and he says to the person on the line " You can do that? Yeah l like that". The wife shouts out " Who you talking to? ".. His response " Jake from State Farm." She takes the phone and says " What are you wearing Jake from State Farm? " His response " Khakis." What l was implying is that keeping secrets from the spouse can be  detrimental to a marriage,  especially when it involves money.You spend money that could be used for other needed essentials, you dooming a marriage. There have been cases where one partner has used the rent/ mortgage payment on lottery tickets instead, you know where I am going with this...enough said.

        I only took your credit card away for a month babe.  Words like "misogynistic" show competitive weakness on your part so now im docking you two months.  Pray i don't alter the deal further.   As far as wives i know alot of them but you missed the point.  It don't take a $1000 to get a room in the middle of the day.Wink

        As far as time frames you referenced ill bring us back to the 1980's.  Capitalism, Higher Interest Rates, Heavy Metal Music, Real Man Stock Car Racing, Real Man Football, Savers over Spenders, Liberals Smashed, Conservatism Reigns, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Clint Eastwood, Larry Bird, And Ronald Reagan Baby!   Anyone using words with "ism" were weaklings to be laughed at.Big Grin

        And here I thought vegans were zen because of all that... veganism.

                Odd, comment to say when we hear all the time

                'you can do anything you set your mind to"

                and 100 other like phrases.

                So why haven't you won the lottery yet? Just too weak-minded, or is it because there are far more than 100 clichés and phrases that aren't true?

                  Thanks, the last line says everything I need to know about you. And now everything is made clear.

                  I might wake up early and go running.  I might also wake up and win the lottery.

                  The odds are about the same.

                    Tell that to Verln Adamson, he won Supercash twice.  Once in 2008 then again earlier this year.  The first time he ran his ticket 4 times then in Feb he ran it 3 times.  He claims to have a mathematical calculation that improves the odds but he won't tell anyone what it is.  Sometimes persistence is rewarded.

                      wow, so having a simple conversation about this with you puts in you 'attack mode' - Ok, learned my lesson - no responses to KY Floyd comments.

                        It was just a simple question. If you can do anything by putting your mind to it but haven't won the lottery yet, then what could possibly be preventing you from winning other than something to do with your mind?  Of course there are alternative explanations, and I asked about one of them. I'm thinking it has to be one of those two possibilities (I'm discounting the possibility that you can do it with mind control but just haven't bothered), but if you think there are even more possibilities I'll consider them.

                          "He claims to have"

                          I wouldn't be surprised to find out he actually believes it, but that doesn't make it true.

                            Everyone has their vice yours may be Lotto but she has hers as well. As long as you can pay your bills I don't see the problem in playing but some might say keeping it a secret is wrong.

                             

                            Use these lines when telling her:

                            "Honey I'm doing it for US"

                            "When WE win..."

                            Besides I guarantee she'll be the first in line when you hit and a supportive spouse is less likely to be replaced with a newer, younger, less opinionated model (I joke I Joke).

                              She doesn't like me playing at all because she knows what would happen if I ever won.

                              She'd get divorced so fast it would make her head spin.  Yeah, she'd probably get half but I don't care, I'd pay any amount of $ necessary to be free.
